Behind The Scenes At Ebony Magazine
Following on from Michael’s photo-shoot and interview with Ebony magazine to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of ‘Thriller’, Ebony have posted on their web site some of the two hundred questions they have received from fans all over the world along with answers.
Included in their answers is the following:
The photo-shoot was eight months in the planning, and took over six hours to complete. Michael made five costume changes into clothes from designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Valentino and Cesare Paciotti, plus he wore over $2 million worth of diamond jewellery.
Michael, who attended with Blanket, grooved to his music while posing, and even danced a little. When the shoot was over, he left to put the children to bed.
The next day, the Ebony team went to Michael’s hotel and he spoke to them for an hour and a half.
The final question asked if there are plans for another Ebony/Jet/Michael Jackson collaboration in the near future and the answer…”As they say, “stay tuned.” We are planning one more cover, this time on our sister publication, Jet magazine, to come out in mid-December. It is a weekly magazine, so keep an eye out for it on your newsstand. We may even have some breaking news in it, too!
